This year, Pierce City Elementary will be participating in a nationwide event called The Great Kindness Challenge.  The Great Kindness Challenge is one week dedicated to creating a culture of kindness on campuses nationwide.  This year's event runs from January 28-February 1.   Each child will be given a kindness checklist and challenged to complete as many kind acts as possible over the course of the week.  In addition to the kindness checklist, we will have a special theme each day to add a little fun.  I would invite you to add extra meaning to this year's challenge by having your own kindness challenge at home in conjunction with the event.  Here is a list of the themes for the week.  

  • Tuesday-Kicking off Kindness-wear mismatched socks and shoes
  • Wednesday-Make Kindness a Pattern-wear clothes with patterns (polka dots, stripes, plaid, camo, etc.)
  • Thursday-Team Up for Kindness-wear your favorite team or team colors (No Chief's clothing please 😊)
  • Friday-Kindness Counts-wear clothing with numbers

 I hope everyone has a great time with this event!  Together, let's show the world that...KINDNESS MATTERS!

Our 2019 Kids Heart Challenge is fast approaching!  We will have our kick-off assembly next Friday, January 25, and the actual event runs through February 15.  Your child will be bringing home information explaining this year's event and incentives.  I am encouraging everyone to go online to register.  It is absolutely free, and your child will earn a bracelet for doing so.  Simply go to and click on sign up.  We had a record year last year, so I'm so excited to see what this year's event brings!  Thanks for being a Heart Hero!
